  • ACDSee Presets????

    Hello,
    I was wondering if there are any 'Presets' commercially or otherwise available for ACDSee Photo Studio Pro 2018. There seems to be a number available for Lightroom from various people/sources all the time, but I haven't seen anything from ACDSee in all the 11 years that I have been using it.
    I do have my own presets in the various Develop Mode Tools, like WB's, ISO settings, and Tone Curve settings, which I have made up over the years and use for image files that are shot under those various conditions & camera settings.
    I would just be interested to know and trial any that may be available.
    BTW, I am shooting with a Pentax K1 camera.
    Cheers,
    Phil Thomson.

    Not that I know of. I think it's because ACDSee doesn't make it convenient to import/export presets like Adobe. Since everything seems to be in the registry, it's very difficult to share anything.

      Hello,

      The next release of ACDSee will support exporting and importing Develop & Edit Mode presets and support exporting and importing ACDSee Actions.
      To be released in Sept 2018.

      Regards,
      Mark

        AC-actions are recorded as xml files and stored in zip files with extension .acda located in "%localappdata%\ACD Systems\Actions". Imho they can easily be copied and shared with other users.

        The global development presets are located in "[HKCU\Software\ACD Systems\EditLib\Version 1.0\Develop\Presets\Global" They too may be exported into .reg files and imported on another machine with double clicks. Not a big deal.

          Sure, not a big deal, if one knows (and wants) to drill in the registry. It's not complicated but it's cumbersome and it's not a way to go. One of the reasons software like Lightroom or ON1 (which is being developed like crazy) became so popular was a hassle-free approach to presets. Easy to share, easy to install, etc. In no time there was a huge aftermarket for presets. This in turn helped greatly in making the software popular. I'm glad to see that ACDSee will finally make a step in the right direction, this will likely convince me to upgrade immediately.
          Btw, have you seen luminosity masks in ON1? Now, that's really something! Ok, Pixel Targeting is great but still the level of control ON1 offers in this respect is awesome. I'd welcome similar developments in ACDSee. Not to mention Pixel Targeting in Develop mode. And virtual copies...

            Hello,

            If you’re looking at Lensfun 0.3.2 that is the Lensfun engine and it hasn’t been updated since 2015-11-15 but that’s okay. The engine usually doesn’t need to be updated and only gets updated when needed.

            The Lensfun database is actively being updated and that is what ACDSee includes in our updates to support new profiles. The last database update was in December 2017.

            Adding Pixel Targeting in Develop Mode is on our feature backlog.

            Regards,
            Mark

              Clear! Thank you Mark. And yes, Pixel Targeting in Develop would be a huge asset.
